      Given the recent increase in e-cigarette use among adolescents, there is a need to further explore how school programs are associated with e-cigarette initiation. The objective of this quasi-experimental study was to ...
    • Morse: Reducing the Feature Interaction Explosion Problem Using Subject Matter Knowledge as Abstract Requirements 

      Millet, Laure; Day, Nancy; Joyce, Jeffrey J. (IEEE, 2018-08)
      The feature interaction problem appears in many different kinds of complex systems, especially systems whose elements are created or maintained by separate entities - for example, a modern automobile that incorporates ...
    • Most Complex Non-returning Regular Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Davies, Sylvie (Springer, 2017-07-03)
      A regular language L is non-returning if in the minimal deterministic finite automaton accepting it there are no transitions into the initial state. Eom, Han and Jirásková derived upper bounds on the state complexity of ...
    • Most Complex Regular Ideal Languages 

      Liu, Bo Yang Victor; Davies, Sylvie; Brzozowski, Janusz (Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, 2016-10-17)
      A right ideal (left ideal, two-sided ideal) is a non-empty language $L$ over an alphabet $\Sigma$ such that $L=L\Sigma^*$ ($L=\Sigma^*L$, $L=\Sigma^*L\Sigma^*$). Let $k=3$ for right ideals, 4 for left ideals and 5 for ...
    • Most Complex Regular Right-Ideal Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Davies, Gareth (Springer, 2014)
      A right ideal is a language L over an alphabet Sigma that satisfies the equation L = L Sigma*. We show that there exists a sequence (Rn vertical bar n >= 3) of regular right-ideal languages, where R-n has n left quotients ...
    • Mother-Child Communication: The Influence of ADHD Symptomatology and Executive Functioning on Paralinguistic Style 

      Nilsen, Elizabeth S.; Rints, Ami; Ethier, Nicole; Moroz, Sarah (Frontiers, 2016-08-10)
      Paralinguistic style, involving features of speech such as pitch and volume, is an important aspect of one’s communicative competence. However, little is known about the behavioral traits and cognitive skills that relate ...
    • Motivational Affordance and Risk-Taking Across Decision Domains 

      Zou, Xi; Scholer, Abigail A. (SAGE Publications, 2016-03-01)
      We propose a motivational affordance account to explain both stability and variability in risk-taking propensity in major decision domains. We draw on regulatory focus theory to differentiate two types of motivation ...
    • Motivational Versus Metabolic Effects of Carbohydrates on Self-Control
